If Linux is your preferred choice of operating system, you can now buy Dell’s stunning XPS 13 Developer Edition notebook with Ubuntu 14.04 pre-installed. But you’ll need a big budget; the only models currently available with Linux start at $1,549.99.
All three of the Linux-powered XPS 13 machines pack high-end Intel Core i7 processors, but Dell plans to offer more affordable units with Core i5 chips later on. The $1,549.99 model boasts 8GB of RAM and 256GB of solid-state storage.
For $1,949.99, you can get a Core i7 processor with 16GB of RAM and 512 of solid-state storage, while $2,349.99 gets you a Core i7 with 16GB of RAM and 1TB of storage. All three have a 13-inch InfinityEdge touchscreen and ship in 4-6 business days.
Dell is also offering its Precision 5510, 3510, 7510, and 7710 notebooks — its complete Precision mobile lineup — with Ubuntu Linux 14.04. To get this option, simply pick the model you want in the Dell online store, then click “Customize & Buy” and choose Linux as your OS.
The Precision lineup also offers Intel Xeon chips, AMD and NVIDIA video cards, up to 64GB of RAM, and 4K displays for those who need these things. You can order yours today by following the source link below.
